The company kicked off in 2015 with the October 16 release of Now You Know from hard rock artist Madame Mayhem, who’s first single – “Monster” – has been garnering significant airplay.
Leading 2016 will be the release of Turn It Up!, a documentary focusing on the history of the guitar. The film, featuring a diverse all-star cast of artists, including Les Paul, Slash, B.B.
